Mornings cascade in darkness
do not be afraid, arrives the day20140910_164230(0)
in concurring with the amosphere

a  swallow calls from circling the garden

Coldness fulfils its morning raid
Swiping through each nook and cranny

night somehow lingers on
Well in to the day
Train bellows and shoots along

Phoenix air envelops the rooms
Pitter patter, hesitates the rain

The bin lorry cranks up, emitting fumes
Kettle boils and people leave

Hope the brightness doesn’t come too soon20140910_161904
To enjoy the marigolds twinkling in the still
light and yellow moon.

Snuggle up to enjoy the morning song
Of humming birds and the river long
Watch night times hold start to disappear

A sip of warm lemon water
Turns acid to alkaline,
rummaging around.
A winter morning, like no other of its kind
brings drizzle on the decking, &
Warms an uneasy mind
